Political Organizations and Parties Division

For the 2019 Political Organizations and Parties division, we made an effort to frame our call for papers to encourage a diverse set of submissions, including in our call: “We especially welcome panel proposals whose composition reflects the diversity of the discipline.” When we reviewed our nearly 120 submissions, we made an explicit effort to identify and to include traditionally underrepresented colleagues based on gender, race and ethnicity, institution type, rank, subfield, methods, and other features. Unfortunately, the APSA submission system does not collect information on these identities, but our efforts paid off. Participation by women across all types of panels and in all roles reflects the proportion of women who submitted to the division. And, there are no manels.
